April Dollies

Air-Dry Clay

A couple of new dollies have appeared in the Quimper Hitty cupboard – one arrived in an informal state of dishabille…




…and the other was swaddled and wrapped in magnificent clothes…



Holy Child?

…are you the Holy Child? you must be lonesome for Your Mother!



New Dress

Little clay girl was made by the youngest member of the human family, and came on a short visit to the Quimper Hittys, with a request for a pretty dress, which we managed to make out of a woven ribbon…



Good night

…and we made her a little padded box bed which we hope will keep her safe while travelling.



Story time

The other tiny doll appeared at the bottom of a box of sewing stuff of my grandmother’s – how did I never notice it before? Maybe because it is only 1 1/2 inches long. It is so magnificently dressed I wonder if it was originally a crèche figure? If so, he has only ever heard Christmas stories, so this will make a pleasant change…

    • I am a bit perplexed about the tiny dolly…but she is very small and must have been overlooked until I unrolled a scrap of lace and there it was. Youngest is a creative delight to play with!

  1. What a chance “meeting” of these two sweet dollies. Yes, the one is dressed quite royally and the other is now clothed beautifully too. This is a very dear narrative.

  2. Precious!
    Youngest member of the family will have the most precious memories of her loving , talented and fun Grandmother.
    Wishing every one a happy Easter.

    • They both seem happy – Teeny one will stay in the Quimper cupboard, but little clay girl has gone back to her family of origin after acquiring her new dress and travelling bed!

  3. what a fun surprise….and what a nice dress and bed you made the new dolly. her human is sure to be very pleased with her new frock.
